SageTV doesn't give up focus for remote

Ok, so I switched remotes to one of the iMon solutions. Everything has been working great so far... except when I run an external program. Whenever I run an external program, then use the remote, then remote controls SageTV and it jumps to the foreground. This happens for all the Dynamic Menu options (sleep and full-screen) and it happens even if SageTV has been minimized. Now, if I Alt-Tab, and select the external program, the remote works for the external program with no problems, and exiting out brings me back to Sage. How can get Sage to give up focus (or automate the Alt-Tb process)?

I am so close to having my system at 100%. This is driving me nuts

If you are ever stuck on this as I was, make sure to uncheck "Use Exclusive Mode" in the iMon settings. It locks the remote into that app. At last, I finally got it.
